Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour.  And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

My opinion: ♥♥♥♥

I bought the book because i really love the cover and so i thought it might be a good book. And yeah, it is. It's such a great and heartbreaking story. You can trust me when I say, that the end could't be more sad. I cried the last 100 pages and i think that's the point that makes a book a good one. An other positive point is, that it's written in kind of plain  English so it's good to read, also for people with different first languages like me. 
The only negative point is, that I wasn't really captivated by this book.I wasn't in school or somewhere else and just thinking about going home and read it.But apart from this it was a great book which you should have read and the end is written in such a good way. Pure emotion. I can't wait to read "After you".
